The Showdown Effect Shows Off an Effective Website Full of One-Liners

NEW YORK — January 17, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a no-nonsense publisher pushed to the edge with nothing left to lose, has launched a new website for The Showdown Effect, the multiplayer movie-massacre mayhem title scheduled for release on March 5, 2013. Visitors will get a taste of what waits for them in The Showdown Effect, and marvel at just how many bullets, explosions, and one-liners can be contained on a single site. There is also a chance to generate one’s own action movie tagline with a movie trailer voice, including such hits as “Destroy Action-Packed Pigeons!” at the following link:

In addition to the website, Paradox has also released a new video for The Showdown Effect, highlighting the title’s in-game animation and art. Viewers interested in how the game renders a man being blasted through a fourth-story window by a rocket explosion may view the informative piece here:
